Hands-on Application

Factory visits allow students to see manufacturing in action — from making ball bearings at Barden Bearings to high-grade door hardware at Assa Abloy to high-tech escape hatches at Bilco. Other companies that participate in this program include Sikorsky, Schick, and Covidien, where students learn the ins and outs of production, productivity maximization, purchasing through complex global supply chains, the use of lean techniques and six sigma to increase profitability, and how to conduct value stream mapping exercises.
